ULTRA PRE-THEATRICAL RELEASE! NARRATED BY JOEL EDGERTON ("WARRIOR")! Mark Mathews is a surfer with dreams of being the best. Richie Vaculik dreams of becoming a MMA Cage-Fighting Champion. When adrenaline-seeking antics and partying turn sour, it sets off a dramatic series of events that threaten to derail both of their dreams. But for these two friends, giving up is not an option, and their unwavering friendship gives them the courage to battle their demons and conquer their fears.

A documentary that reaffirms the hard-drinking, hard-partying, hard-fighting values of good old fashioned mateship, as Bra Boys director Macario De Souza follows the friendship of two friends - one a Big Wave Surfer and the other a cage-fighter.
If you can wait until Fighting Fear hits DVD or TV -- it would have fared better as a one-hour TV special -- you won't be missing much.
Putting to one side its rough edges, Fighting Fear is another compelling story of contemporary Sydney culture.
With two compelling figures at its core, this engagingly honest and unapologetically positive doco makes for exciting and ultimately moving viewing.
